Dear Dr Pipes: Reader "Muslim at a Catholic college" is pretending that s/he cannot see the difference between the killer in Norway and Islamist killers. Let me help:

1) Breivik's primarily killed his own people.

2) There is substantial opposition to his acts among normal Christians.

3) Breivik's kind of killing are very infrequent.

4) Breivik's si not working to convert the entire world to his religion.

5) There are no "christian political wars" going around all around our planet.

That should help.
